FRIED SHRIMP WITH FETA (GARIDES SAGANAKI)

Ingredients for 4 people 

1.1 pound  large shrimp shelled 
3.5 oz  onion, chopped 
3.5 oz olive oil 
1 tsp. chopped garlic 
1 concentrated vegetable broth 
0.4oz  chili peppers, chopped 
3.5 oz cherry tomatoes cut in half 
1 oz white balsamic vinegar 
5.3 oz water 
1 tsp. tsp salt 
1 tsp.  chopped fresh basil 
3.5 oz  feta cheese


Preparation 
Remove the shrimp from the packaging and place in a strainer pot, over a deep bowl, which collects the liquid. Cover the pan with a wet towel or membrane suitable for food and place it in the refrigerator compartment of the refrigerator. The shrimps will regain their natural shape as soon as defrosted. Rinse the shrimp and let it drain .
In a deep pan  saute the onion in olive oil and garlic until they shine slightly. Add the broth, basil, chili peppers, cherry tomatoes and salt and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar.
Crush feta cheese by hand and add to pan.
Place the shrimp and sprinkle salt  lightly on top. Stir gently continuing cooking for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve immediately.
Serve the shrimp with rice or green salad.

Tips: You can replace the tomatoes with one tomato cut into large pieces. Also, if you fast you can replace feta cheese with vegetable one. 
Enjoy your meal!!
